One day, Kataklysm’s vocalist Maurizio Iacono, a Canadian of Italian heritage, probably thought “Hey, these Scandinavian guys sure have a sweet culture. They sing about it all the time. I can do that, too!” and he did. He started a side project called Ex Deo and wrote a concept album about Rome, called ‘Romulus’.
If you’re not familiar with Roman culture, definitely watch the video above, for the titletrack of the album, because it tells the story of Romulus and Remus. Definitely metal, I approve.
